Checkout Roadtrips vol 1 #3 That is right up with Ladies and Gentleman. IMO Skull and Roses was too much an attempt to turn live recordings into a studio release by emphasizing shorter set one songs and downplaying the whole live sound. The highlight of S&R,especially at the time it was released was the new songs such a Warf Rat and Bertha

Hey GR--it's interesting how my love of S&R has changed--waned abit--the past few yrs as I explored so much of the rest of 71...the production that so tarnished eur72 (just for me kids! don't write in about my pathetic tastes) didn't seem as dramatic for S&R until recently...now I rarely if ever listen to it. I still recognize it as great, and I don't think they grossly overdid the production with dubbing and such, but it just doesn't seem as "live" as I used to think, though not as much so as Eur72.

I agree, with all the 71" s available here and elsewhere S&R has lost its luster. I always feel bad about the overdubs as I do really like Merl Saunders great Hammond work on the tracks. S&R got me interested in his work with Jerry and I still follow that today.

This is one of my favorites from '71. A nice rich fat sound.

I've never really been able to get into pre-Keith 1971 Dead, primarily due to the lack of serious jammage. The ones I do tend to pull out are the few with the Dark Stars (2/18, for example), and there were some nice Other Ones in that era as well (often paired with those fantastic early Wharf Rats). Though they really do SHINE on the "first set" material. I'm always blown away by the Bobby McGee's and the El Paso's and such from the era. And Pig had some sweet Good Lovin's in there, too...
